1/144 Planned Release for 2016

1/144 Planned Release for 2016 

Some interesting planned releases from RODEN, a numbre of VC-10s

Vickers Super VC10 – was a long-range British airliner designed and built by Vickers-Armstrongs and its first flight was in 1962. The airliner was designed to operate on long-distance Empire routes and commanded excellent ‘Hot and High’ performance for operations from African airports. With its introduction by BOAC in April 1964, the VC10 became an immensely popular aircraft in the BOAC fleet, both with passengers and crew, being particularly praised for its comfort and low cabin noise levels. It was BOAC’s most successful Aircraft in terms of passenger numbers carried. The VC10 still holds the record for the fastest London to New York crossing of the Atlantic, of 5 hours and 1 minute. Other major users of the VC10 were East African Airways and the Royal Air Force, the latter only withdrawing from service its last VC10 in 2013.
